House Call: Brian & Tina's Modern Makeover

Names: Tina and Brian Trost

Location: Oak Park

We got an email from Brian about sharing the wonderful home he and Tina have made for themselves in Oak Park. They bought an eighties home that had lines with possibilities and gave it a modern makeover through a mix of creative thinking...

...DIY smarts, a collection of modern classic furniture collected piece by piece over the years, an excellent eye for color and some well planned professional gut jobs.

1. Eames Rosewood Screen, Saarinen Womb Chair and Nelson Coconut Chair
2. Bubble Lamps
3. Noguchi Fin Table in front of a George Nelson sofa, Noguchi Lamp
4. Nelson Bench
5. Eames DCM chairs in dining area

Bottom Row, left to right:

7. Cedar plank and slate-colored Hardiboard exterior
8. Blooming Eastern Redbud tree in front of Hardipanel-covered facade

We pulled the great photos of the home seen above from Brian's flickr set but if you'd like to see more, the home is currently featured in the new issue of Chicago Home & Garden. Check out the photos and coverage from Chicago Home right here.

Thanks, Brian!
